Hal, or whoever you are posting as today,

Your bias, vendetta, infatuation and fixation is showing again! Why are you always thinking you need to school everyone? I have no doubt qualified voters know what their options are-without you playing daddy.

You know, I know, and many readers know you live in District 2, where there are two qualified candidates. You do not live in District 3 or District 5 where there is a single candidate for each contest. No matter how you try, Mary Piepho and Federal Glover win by default.

You are welcome to look at any of the past election results Web Link
and see that when people vote "other", they are simply throwing their votes away. It happens every election, no matter whom the candidate (running uncontested). For the most part the candidates themselves pay little attention to "other" as those votes are not quantified or qualified.

If voting "other" makes you feel better about yourself in a make believe world of what matters than that is your right. Other than that, it really makes no difference, sends no message and puts no one on notice. You need to get over your minor league crush. Your message has no impact except to further identify your deep seated frustrations.

Dear Gina and Mary,

Thank you for your commentary as Informed Resident. So very clarifying as to why a majority vote for OTHER becomes so very important.

Hal,

You really ought to stop assuming so much-maybe loosen the strap on that tin foil hat of yours. I am not Mary and I am not Gina, but at least I always post as the same person and state my case clearly.

Keep it up, you are just painting yourself into a corner again and again.

Thanks again, Mary and Gina, for your sponsorship of Informed Resident's abusive commentary.

Try focusing on reasons voters should select a ballot candidate in accordance with "As your ballot arrives, please take time to evaluate every ballot candidate to determine who deserves your expression of freedom in your right to choose."

Shall we assumed your sponsored commentary missed that point?

Hal,

You obviously missed my point, so I will post it for you again (just like you post the same old thing over again and again and again).

I think your needle is stuck and your record is skipping.

Thank you Mary and Gina,

Neighborhood voters now have quite enough sponsored commentary as reminder that CCC-BOS is a criminal enterprise that fully disregards the will and interests of Contra Costans. Such voters can fully agree with such sponsored commentary "when people vote "other", they are simply throwing their votes away. It happens every election, no matter whom the candidate (running uncontested). For the most part the candidates themselves pay little attention to "other" as those votes are not quantified or qualified."

What is realized is CCC-BOS members and their supporters pay little attention to voters' will and interests when votes are cast for incumbents or their "replacement" candidates. It becomes quite obvious that OTHER is appropriate vote when voters matter little to such criminal enterprise.
